Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Gene Autry sings, fights, and sings some more in the Cinecolor "special" The Big Sombrero. Autry comes to the aid of senorita Estrellita Estrada (Elena Verdugo), who is slated to marry villainous James Garland (Stephen Dunne). The caddish Garland intends to sell Estrellita's ranch for a huge profit once he's tied the matrimonial bonds. Interspersed throughout the action highlights are scenes of an ongoing fiesta, with music, dancing and pageantry aplenty. Like all of Gene Autry's personal productions, Big Sombrero benefits from tasty production values and a surfeit of thrills.
